Elite groups

There are many different people who are classed as being in an elite group. These groups are: Bankers and entrepreneurs, property developers, film stars and directors, writers and artists, musicians and dancers, TV actors and celebrities, sports men and women, computer programmers and health professionals.

These people can have different powers such as having lots of money through their jobs such as David Beckham through football and publicity or like Richard Branson by creating innovative ideas that changed the way we live earning him money. These elite groups could also have power through being socially popular; this mainly includes celebrities and big time names such as Lady Gaga or JK Rowling.

These people may find few obstacles that prevent them from moving between countries for work or to live, for example there are over 200,000 Americans living in the UK even though the USA is not part of the EU and its migration laws. These people can move around easily as they have lots of spare cash that they can use easily to travel to where ever they want to go and set up a place to live there if they want to or can afford to stay in expensive hotels.

These elite groups can move around easily as they are all highly skilled in their own professions meaning that countries would allow them in as there work could help to improve that country and their wealth could benefit the local economy. For example David Beckham played for Manchester United in England, after a very successful career in England for united and as England captain he moved to Spain to play for Real Madrid who did not hesitate to take him up on the offer of him playing for them as he would gain them lots of publicity thus earning them more money. He has later moved onto play in Italy and in America in LA where he now has acquired a high status there earning America a good reputation…...

In order for Elite Personal Training to succeed, a well thought out pricing strategy needs to be put into place that can determine the right price points compared to their competition.

Skill Acquisition Study Comparing Elite Sportsmen to Novices

...A study comparing the skill acquisition of novice performers against that of elite performers in basketball For this study, I observed a year 7 group of novice basketball players. Many of them had never played basketball before, and some of them had only started playing very recently. I also observed an NBA game, to compare the skills of the two groups. There is a huge difference in all areas of skill acquisition between the two groups of basketball players. The areas of skill acquisition I am going to look at are skill and ability, information processing, memory and decision making. Performance is affected by how well a player can use these different areas, whilst performing. Firstly I observed the skill levels of both the NBA basketball players and the year seven basketball players. There are seven aspects of skill, so I judged both performances on some of the aspects of skill. The NBA basketball skills were very aesthetically pleasing. For example, when they took a shot, they would put backspin on the ball by flicking their wrist so the ball dropped in the hoop, of the backboard. This looked very good, because the arm and the wrist move together, in a flowing movement. When you compare this to the year 7’s, the technique was not performed in the same way. Most of them did not flick the wrist to generate backspin, and shot more directly at the basket, rather than looping the ball. This made their performance a lot less skilful because the technique looked messy and......

The Power Elite Does It Exist Today

...C. Wright Mills proposed the power-elite theory in 1956, which states that there is a power elite in modern societies, an elite who commands the resources of vast bureaucratic organizations that have come to dominate industrial societies. According to Mills, the power elite are the key people in the three major institutions of modern society- military, economy and the government (Mills 1956). It is the elite that occupy these leadership positions within the bureaucracies. Although this theory was proposed in what may have been a simpler time, the structure of power in America remains very much the same, as does the close relationship between the military, corporate, and government elites. Mills placed the military as one of the triumvirate groups that comprised the power elite. The military has been elevated to a position of prestige and power and the present class of professional soldiers has had an impact that is far greater than just military affairs. In World War II, large corporations tied to the defense industry rose in power and influence and formed the origins of what President Eisenhower called the military industrial complex (Swanson). The war brought a bureaucratic centralization of power. In more recent times, the demands of foreign affairs, the dangers of potential adversaries, the sophistication and mystique of new weapons, and especially the development of the means of mass destruction have all given power to our highest military leaders (Reynolds). ......

Elites – the Gen Y Transformers

...ELITES – THE GEN Y TRANSFORMERS Nature abhors vacuum, and so do homo-sapiens. The latter, in its unrelenting quest, goes a step further and evolves to improvise, adapt and overcome. Given the nature of how non-conformist descended from the same ancestor, we’re all the same; and yet we’re so different. At the very outset, the elite, since time immemorial, has enjoyed a stellar reputation by virtue of their elevated status, which was, is and continues to be shaped by their social status; political background; cultural hegemony and/or economical might. There is no doubt in mentioning that the elite has toiled hard, slogged painstakingly and worked tirelessly to mount on the pinnacle in every walk of life. However, the existential question still looms large; to what extent the ‘elite’ has contributed and is contributing in the national and global discourse. The answer may well be fraught with complications, and full of labyrinth cross-questions, but this is what this essay seeks to do. I live in India, a developing economy whose population is over 1.2 billion. Though it is the seventh largest country in terms of area it houses the maximum number of people second to China. If we are optimistic, then in one way we have the second largest manpower in the world and we can use it to do wonders. Infact the steady progress which India has been doing in the past has made the developed nations be wary and cautious of India’s achievements. But, on the contrary, if we look at the......

Sexual Harrasment Inlahore Elite Institutions

...Sexual Harassment of Female Secondary to Undergraduate Students in Elite Educational Institutes of Lahore Danyal Haider Raja Qaiser Zeeshan Butt Osama Eshaq Rabia Nafees Shah Academic Writing June 27th 2015 Lahore School of Economics Sexual Harassment of Female Secondary to Undergraduate Students in Elite Educational Institutes of Lahore Introduction The idea for this research sprung from the rising trend of illicit student-teacher relationships in the United States of America, projected actively on the social media. This movement inspired the thought that such behavior may well be prevalent in Pakistan as well and never come to the forefront. The research aims to identify the types of harassment that exist in the secondary and undergraduate sectors of education in Pakistan and the reasons why these incidents are not brought to the attention of the legal system. So far there has not been a study on female sexual harassment in Pakistan that explores the incidence of harassment among the female student community, which is irksome especially given the recent accusations of harassment leveled against an instructor at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), a prestigious university in a posh area of Lahore. One would assume that such an incident would be stimulus enough for rights’ groups to initiate a research into this aspect of female harassment, which is why we have taken it upon ourselves to do so. The research will be primary in nature,......

...MGT320 Leadership Book Paper Book Review of The Way of the SEAL Think like an Elite Warrior to Lead and Succeed By Mark Divine With Allyson Edelhertz Machate In this book, Retired Navy Commander, Mark Divine, presents leadership from a military standpoint. He breaks down his training from the Navy Seal training school into 8 basic principles. Each principle is supported with exercises, meditations, and focusing techniques that will prepare your mind for the challenges in any situation. His personal influences of the martial arts are littered throughout the text. These eight principles are part of one’s “integral training” which encompasses the five human capacities, or to use the author’s term, “five mountains”. These five capacities are interwoven throughout the exercises needed to adapt the author’s eight principles. They are: 1. Physical 2. Mental 3. Emotional 4. Intuitional 5. Spiritual Principle One His first principle is to “Establish Your Set Point”. This is the “inner sense” of every person – i.e. what makes us different. To do this we must exercise the emotional and mental capacities we all have by accessing four key elements. First, “Make a Stand” by defining our own beliefs by answering the question “what do we stand for?”. Second, we must “Find Your Purpose”. This will answer “why we are here”. The third element is “What’s Your “Why”? Why we do things have either an intrinsic or extrinsic......

To What Extent Can “Ethnic Cleansing” in Bosnia Be Attributed to the Manipulative Influence of Elites?

...manipulative influence of elites? In the years before the disintegration of Yugoslavia in 1990-91, ethnic relations were neighbourly and cooperative. However, Yugoslavia had been made up of six republics and it was a multi-ethnic country in which ‘nations and nascent states did not coincide’. Bosnia in particular was multi-ethnic. Its population consisted of Serbs, Croats and Muslims. There was undoubtedly potential for ethnic conflict and with the failure of communism and the disintegration of Yugoslavia, ethnic relation deteriorated rapidly. This was in large part due to the manipulative influence of elites who sought to establish nation states. Serbian nationalists looking to create a “Greater Serbia”, and Croatian nationalists attempting to establish a “Greater Croatia” manipulated ethnic relations with repetitive propaganda and “expert” opinion. Added to this, the fear and uncertainty created by the disintegration itself was a factor that led to ethnic cleansing, spawning nationalist ideologies and giving credibility rumours spread by elites. Furthermore, a history of ethnic cleansing in the Balkans made the transition from nationalism to ethnic cleansing short and easy, as well as making people more receptive to the influence of elite propaganda. Existing communal conflicts in Bosnia were also in small part responsible for the levels of ethnic cleansing however these were exaggerated and intensified again by the influence of political and military elites. To a......

Changes in marriage and divorce laws and policies have further affected individual household members in different ways that is, children live in many different family forms, but the most common pattern is that they live with their mothers and have less contact with their fathers. As a result, a common alteration that children are forced to make is an adjustment to life without their father at home. Most children share time between the mother's household and the father's household, and families are creative in finding ways for children to maintain meaningful relationships with both parents involvement after divorce The conflicts over ownership......
